We are aware that it can be problematic, so we developed a simple but effective solution. Now, if you are using the UPS WooCommerce plugin, you can easily get details of UPS Access Point that your clients choose. All the necessary data is now saved in a special table and can be passed through the WooCommerce REST API.
